The world is gone hopes and dreams
shattered eternal life swallowed by
the flame I lie
in pieces stones among
the ruins resurrection of the living
a hopeless toil
Evrèmonde Evrèmonde ye show
no mercy to the fallen
child paid the price in
torn heart body fragmented
mind advocates of the tortured
soul whirlwind scattered thoughts among
the dusty air.
